"I was fortunate enough to discover Greg's course shortly after deciding to enter this business. The technical and business knowledge I've gained from this course was exactly what I needed. Sure, I could have stumbled along in the dark and eventually found my way, but Greg's course saved me time and and gave me insights that would have taken much longer to acquire. His course is a giant flashlight, illuminating both obstacles and opportunities."
I love aerial videography. I've been flying since the first generation drone Phantom 1. In this course I've upgraded to the 4k drone that can shoot stable videos and stills. You have the ability to monitor a live HD feed, control your camera, and see live stats from your mobile app. It's amazing technology, but it can be a bit overwhelming for the non techies.
In this online course I will teach non techies how to learn how to fly safely and take amazing videos and photos from the air with the DJI Phantom 3 drone. This course is organized in a logical way to help you accomplish your goals:

Hi! I was born in South Africa but as a child my family relocated to Canada and lived most of adult life in beautiful British Columbia. I remember getting a VHS camcorder and would make and direct my own home videos with my sisters. I attended Simon Fraser University (SFU) with a Communications degree and had another opportunity to film an educational hip-hop video for earth quakes. After I graduated university I went on to have a successful IT career working 13 years in the field.As an IT manager I went onto pursue my MBA at SFU and found inspiration to start my own business and travel and film.By the time I had completed my MBA in 2011 I had found my passion travel, business, and filming.
During a wild and intense 3-year period I sold my house and purchased a camera and traveled the globe with my camera in search of adventure. I traveled to places such as Beijing, Singapore, Shanghai, The Grand Canyon, and Turks and Caicos. During this period a new revolution with the SLR camera was allowing people to create cinema quality video. I spent countless hours trying to learn everything I could from the best to hone my craft.I currently have over 100 videos on youtube and have one of the strongest travel video collections on the Internet. I recommend you check out my videos on-line if you’re interested in watching my videos.
After returning to Vancouver I planned my next travel adventure to Australia, Asia, and Taiwan. I sold my car and all my possessions and arrived in Taiwan with my essentials, camera gear, and my dreams. I currently live in Taiwan learning mandarin, teaching English, and filming travel videos.
I believe I’m a continuous learner (currently learning Mandarin) and I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to learn things.I get upset when an article gives advice or directions and it is so general it leaves out the important details. I try to provide detailed step-by-step instructions using visuals or video. I hope you find my courses interesting and I see you in there!
